A new take on a popular, versatile standard lens
The previous 18-55mm lenses from Nikon have been some of the most versatile, popular and affordable Zoom lenses produced and this New AF-P 18-55mm VR version looks to do more of the same. Retaining the versatility and compact form factor, the new AF-P lens includes a stepping focus motor which helps you to achieve accurate autofocus in a timely and quiet manner. This will come in handy when capturing fast moving subjects and will be especially appreciated when shooting video on your Nikon DSLR.
A portable design with no sacrifices
Portability is the key to producing a successful everyday kit lens and Nikon have well and truly delivered on this point. Measuring 62.5mm in length and weighing under 200 grams, this standard zoom lens will never prove to cumbersome for an occasion, particularly suited to smaller entry-level Nikon cameras. This compact design is made possible by the use of retractable barrels and none of this size saving has had a negative effect on the image quality. In the optical makeup Nikon have utilised two Aspherical lens elements for producing beautifully sharp images, with the suppression of imperfections, such as distortions and spherical aberration.
Suited to every shooting condition
To keep you using this 3.1x zoom lens throughout your long days and into the night, Nikon have included their excellent VR stabiliser. This effective stabilisation affords you up to a 4-stop increase in shutter speed, meaning you can keep shooting and producing sharp pictures even in darker conditions and indoors. Just another step that has been taken to ensure this is a highly successful day to day lens.
